Pert Near Sandstone at The Velvet Elk Lounge

August 1 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm MDT

Pert Near Sandstone delivers another album of all original songs, recorded over the harshest months of a midwestern winter. ‘Waiting Days,’ their eighth studio album, has all the strengths of its four songwriters offering responses to each other’s compositions. After almost twenty years together, their music has grown to reflect that of a band of brothers. As longtime stewards of the modern stringband revival, their studio recordings have continuously pulled the genre toward a more contemporary perspective, meditating on the present and rich with reference. This isn’t music reaching for the banality of pop hits, instead they provide fresh air for blades of new grass to grow in. The intimacy of collaboration is at the heart of this album, adding textures of guest artists that reflect Pert Near’s genuine intentions to further the acoustic community that has been their cornerstone. “…I want to take you with me when I go.” Let’s get ready. Now is our time. The waiting days are over.

Bar opens at 5 PM and happy hour from open to 7 PM. (21+) The Velvet Elk Lounge does not allow minors – No Exceptions.
